The Blyth Woods’ stand was made ready on the morning of the Bazaar and just as well that it was as excited visitors jumped the 2 o’clock gun making for a frantic start to the event.
We were delighted to have so many people visiting our stand throughout the afternoon and showing an interest in Grove Piece community woodland. Our display board had photographs of the clay day held in October in Grove Piece and there were plenty of excellently sculpted clay products from the event for sale. Chalk sieved from the clay was also available for purchase with a chalk board.
Tree forms from the Grove Piece workshop in September were also displayed and for sale.
Our popular jams, pickles and chutneys flew off the shelves and the “Guess the number of holly leaves in the jar” competition drew in many punters in the hope of winning a Christmas hamper. Well done to our winner, Trish Gower. Lots of sympathy was expressed for Marie who had the task of filling the jar with the holly leaves and is still feeling the effects in her damaged fingers – that’s what happens when you come up with a good idea!
A good time was had by all, especially Father Christmas(who didn’t look a day older than last year) and his Fairy helper and we say thank you to all those who visited our stand and generously contributed to our charity.
Merry Christmas and we look forward to seeing you in Grove Piece in 2019!
